Philadelphia, Pa. | Masterman
Turkson led the Fords to a 2-0 week, nearly averaging a double-double with 13.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per contest while shooting 55% from the floor. The junior forward scored 24 points on 58.8% (10-for-17) shooting and pulled down 11 boards in Haverford's 68-62 win over Muhlenberg on Saturday. The win was Haverford's first over a team receiving votes in the D3Hoops national poll since 2009. Turkson accounted for over 35% of the team's offense while also posting his third double-double of the season with 11 rebounds. With the win, Haverford (8-1, 4-0 CC) is off to its best start in Centennial Conference play in program history.
